This Mother’s Day, we’re honoring the women of Rochester by partnering with an organization that does so much to empower and care for them.
For every fresh flower arrangement or bouquet purchased now through May 11th, we’ll donate $1 to the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester.
The Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester is made up of survivors, supporters, a caring staff, and a passionate community. The Coalition has helped hundreds of women (and men) who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. They also welcome women with gynecologic cancers.
BCCR has created a space where women can come for support and education, to learn about issues impacting the breast and gynecologic cancer community, and if desired, to participate in events and advocacy. Their programs are free of charge and held at 1048 University Avenue in Rochester, NY, unless otherwise noted.
Breast Cancer is a serious health problem in New York State, with more than 12,000 new cases and 3,500 deaths reported each year. Breast cancer represents over 28% of all malignancies among women. It is the number one cause of death in women between the ages of 30 and 54. At this time, one in eight women can expect to be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. Currently, Monroe County ranks among the highest for all new diagnoses of breast cancer in New York State.
